and south and east of the district. washington, d.c. itself is a little bit dry right now. we've had rain but it's not raining in d.c. at the moment. farther out to the west not bad, but towards front royal, winchester and places like that, it's raining there and that's a good line of heavy rain there. no reports of thunder at this hour. i wouldn't rule out some thunder here and there. but for the most part it's just rain. let's take a look at the area covered by a flood watch. it includes washington, d.c., all of the close-in counties and including prince wiliam county and flood watch in affect until 1:00 this afternoon. out to the west, although we're not showing it on the map, some of the counties are under a flood warning. also a coastal flood warning in affect until 6:00 this evening for the tidal potomac and chesapeake bay. these are wind gusts, 35 mile- per-hour wind gusts at reagan national. 36 in baltimore, 45 at dulles. so there are your gusty winds. that will be a problem through the morning. there is a wind advisory in affect until 0:00 and then the winds will die down but sti

cool air to transition the cold rain which will start here tonight in washington over to this wintry mix which will include the possibility of a little freezing rain around here, maybe some sleet, and you get the idea. maybe even snow in downtown washington before all is said and done. either way, it should all be out of here i think by tomorrow afternoon. and by tomorrow evening we'll be left with cold conditions to start the weekend. so this won't be an all-day -- it won't last for too long of a period of time and i don't think we'll see significant snow accumulation here in washington. off to the north and west where i showed you the winter orm watch, you could see snow totals maybe 2-4 inches of snow. here in washington no advisories at this hour and i would expect accumulations to be held down because we'll see sleet and freezing rain. so maybe a slushy inch of snow across the immediate washington area. increasing clouds and high temperature only 40 degrees. winds out of the east at 5-10. the problems keep going tonight. i mentioned the winter storm watch off to the west. overni
around the region. 28-degree in washington. 26 in baltimore. dulles at 27 degrees. winchester, 4 and at ocean city, it is 26 degrees. your forecast for today looks like this. you will see a mix of clouds and sun. i think mostly clouds i'm few flurries possible through the course of the day. highs in the mid 0s. let's get to julie wright to get an update on traffic. >> we'll check out the ride courtesy of the crew in sky fox. the beltway is not looking so bad. for those traveling off of northbound i-95, you are definitely slow as you work your way northbound leaving potomac mills headed out towards route one. you will find more slow traffic as you work your way out of newington headed up to the springfield interchange. traffic headed northbound slowing out of springfield north of 644 continuing across the beltway and out towards edsall road and up towards duke street. this is pretty typical for your morning commute. below speed headed out towards landmark and the traffic slows again crossing the 14th street bridge headed out towards the exits for the southeast- southwest freeway.
